# This does simple normalized frequency analysis on UTF-8 encoded text. The
# result of the analysis is translated to a ranked list, where every byte is
# assigned a rank. This list is written to src/
# Currently, the frequencies are generated from the following corpuses:
# * The CIA world fact book
# * The source code of rustc
# * Septuaginta
